Snapt, Inc., the disruptive application delivery controller (ADC) company, today announced Lets Encrypt for the software-only Snapt ADC. The addition of the Lets Encrypt plugin allows free, automated SSL certificates for websites enabling significant cost and time-savings for users. With the Lets Encrypt functionality, Snapt is helping to ensure their users are able to secure their websites easily and effectively.
Automatic Let’s Encrypt certificates make admin life so much easier, and, critically, prevent any user interaction errors or delays with certificates that are expired, said Dave Blakey, CEO of Snapt. Expired certificates end up costing companies money as they often lead to a decrease in customers who trust that their online data is encrypted and secure. By leveraging Lets Encrypts capabilities, Snapt allows for both cost and resource saving efforts when it comes to updating and maintaining current SSL certificates.
Streamlining SSL Certificate Management to Protect Web Applications
The management of SSL certificates is time consuming and subject to error as an organization can require the use of hundreds or even thousands of SSL certificates. The cost of purchasing each certificate can quickly add up, and if a certificate is missed, mishandled or not renewed on time, major errors in website security of encrypted information can occur. Automating SSL certificate renewal processes can improve upon the manual entry of these updates significantly, reducing the overall cost and time it takes to manually purchase, deploy and renew them. And, unlike other certificate authorities, with Lets Encrypt, there is no cost to obtain or renew a certificate.
Snapt with Lets Encrypt will allow users to:
- Automate the ability to obtain, renew and deploy SSL certificates for free;
- Seamlessly scale by issuing unlimited numbers of certificates to support any number of web applications; and,
- Script and automate the creation and deployment of new sites
In terms of security, without Lets Encrypt, users will assume your site is compromised or that theyve landed on an impersonators site, said Daniel Alfonso, Director of IT, Digital Target Marketing. They then might be more susceptible to actual impersonation attempts because the scammer remembered to renew their certificate.
